OpenShift provides S2I enabled Node.js images for building and running Node.js applications. The Node.js S2I builder image assembles your application source with any required dependencies to create a new image containing your Node.js application. This resulting image can be run either by OpenShift or by Docker.


Currently, OpenShift provides version 0.10 of Node.js.


This image comes in two flavors, depending on your needs:

  • RHEL 7

  • CentOS 7

RHEL 7 Based Image

The RHEL 7 image is available through Red Hat’s subscription registry via:

$ docker pull registry.access.redhat.com/openshift3/nodejs-010-rhel7

CentOS 7 Based Image

This image is available on DockerHub. To download it:

$ docker pull openshift/nodejs-010-centos7

To use these images, you can either access them directly from these image registries, or push them into your OpenShift Docker registry. Additionally, you can create an image stream that points to the image, either in your Docker registry or at the external location. Your OpenShift resources can then reference the ImageStream. You can find example ImageStream definitions for all the provided OpenShift images.


The Node.js image does not offer any environment variable based configuration settings.
